Check mark  Generate Invoices

Prepare detailed invoices simply by activating the flexible invoicing system.

Check mark  Access Archived Data

Prepare trend studies, reports, and historical analysis using easily accessed archived data. Access archived data using the full complement of screens, queries and reports available with the production database.

Check mark  Add New Configuration Data

Easily add new analytes, units of measure, customers, sampling locations, etc. This task is simple, particularly when compared to revising rigid spreadsheet-type architectures.

Productivity

Check mark  Increase Throughput

Increase the quantity of samples analyzed and tracked, without hiring additional lab personnel.

Check mark  Track Productivity

Generate productivity reports which allow lab managers to track turn around times, number of samples or analyses completed per unit of time, expired samples, and exceptions.

Check mark  Schedule Routine Tasks

Increase efficiency by using MSC-LIMS' scheduling features to control routine sampling, analysis, instrument calibration and maintenance tasks to adjust for peak sample volume.

Check mark  Spend Time Effectively

Eliminate many tedious paper-handling tasks, so technicians may spend more productive time at the bench.

Check mark  Adapt MSC-LIMS to YOUR Lab Routine

Avoid wholesale changes to lab operations to fit a LIMS. Instead, easily configure MSC-LIMS' to existing lab procedures, thus providing quicker implementation and training while minimizing disruption of established practices.

Check mark  Customize MSC-LIMS to Suit YOUR Lab

Labs purchasing an MSC-LIMS Full System license may choose to customize the source code to suit their needs.

Check mark  Document Lab Output

Realize increased levels of documentation without an increased level of effort.

Check mark  Provide Access to Data by Outside Personnel

Accuracy

Check mark  Reduce Errors

Significantly reduce data transcription error, since manual data entry is limited to specific sample characteristics at login and to those results not available from direct data import. Virtually all other data entry is done using selections from predefined pull-down lists and menus.

Check mark  Verify Data at Input

MSC-LIMS enforces validation protocols on many fields, allowing technicians to catch data input errors before they are entered.

Check mark  Enhance Quality Control

Document your data's accuracy and precision by using the QC facility. Lab managers set QC limits for both individual analytical methodologies and instrument calibration. Associated control charts can be maintained and updated as necessary.

Check mark  Avoid Missed Deadlines

Use the automated scheduling prompts to notify personnel in advance of sampling events and sample expiration.

Check mark  Avoid the Embarrassment of False Results

Screen your data thoroughly through validation protocols to eliminate illogical data conditions prior to generating your report.

Security

Check mark  Establish Secured Access

Maintain security by establishing individual login accounts with tiered access privileges, controlled by your lab's LIMS administrator.

Check mark  Track Database Revisions

Permanently record all revisions to the database through MSC-LIMS' audit trail, including initial and revised values, who made the change, when, and why.

Check mark  Protect your System During Customizations

While customizing your MSC-LIMS software, protect on-going lab operations by isolating programming changes on a single workstation devoted to programming and testing.
